Is it possible to change the pre-highlight function to not highlight the entire part but just the edges or something/ In the 2012 release it lights up so bright that you can barely make out any details or other components. I know i can turn it off compeltely, but then it's very hard to make out what you're actually selecting. How about only highlighting the edges of a part instead?

Solved! Go to Solution.
Try to uncheck the box "Enable Enhanced Highlighting" in menu Tools > Options > Application Options > Colors tab.
I hope it helps.
It has obviously been a little over 6 months since this post was resolved. I have another issue at the moment concerning Highlighting.
One of the changes I prefer in the Application Options is to un-select both of the Highlight options you illustrated for Misha. I get better performance with my SpaceNavigator in large assemblies with them disabled.
My problem is that since I upgraded from IV-2011 to IV-2012 (both Product Design Suite Premium), parts and assemblies still highlight when I pass over them, even when disabled in the AO. Other changes (like reverse zoom for the wheel mouse, because I am still so AutoCAD oriented) work fine. It seems to be only this Highlight issue.
Maybe something buggy happened during my upgrade/install, which seems likely since apparently nobody else has rasied this question. It is probably related to the fact that I also cannot save these changes between sessions, and have to re-set them every time I start Inventor.
